The 49ers were in desperate need of wide receiver help, and it became very clear as the 2011 season progressed and the corps was depleted. In the NFC Championship game, only one catch was made by a 49er wide receiver. In free agency, San Francisco added wide outs Mario Manningham and Randy Moss.

Moss was signed to a one-year, incentive-laden deal to play with the Niners in 2012. The big thing about Moss is it's hard to tell which player you're getting with him. He can be a gamechanger at will, but could also just quit on a whim. With Jim Harbaugh being the motivator he is, the defense giving Moss multiple opportunities and the 49ers being a top contender, I believe Moss will show up big.

On top of that, he's 35-years-old and hasn't won a Super Bowl, but the 49ers present him with that opportunity if he plays his part. A world championship is really the one thing he's missing from his legacy. The 49ers were in need of a number one deep threat and playmaker on the outside, and Moss provides that. San Francisco needed to upgrade big-time in the red zone, and Moss does that.

The big question is, "how much does Randy Moss improve the 49ers title chances?"

On ESPN's First Take, the guys went at it, covering a lot of aspects and possibilities of the Moss signing. Personally, I believe Doug Stewart in this argument. Ryan Stewart also makes some good points later on. Enjoy the discussion and feel free to post your side of the argument.
